Sen. DiDomenico addresses large crowd at Sexual Health Lobby Day

alt

On Jan. 31, State Senator Sal DiDomenico addressed over 500 advocates at Sexual Health Lobby Day on Beacon Hill. The group was at the State House to fight for family-planning rights and sex education and to advocate for the Senator’s bill, An Act relative to healthy youth. In his speech, the Senator noted that it was one of the largest crowds he had ever seen at the State House – “Thank you to everyone who came today to stand up for what you believe in. Now more than ever, it is so important to make our voices heard and it was amazing to see such an impressive crowd.”

Remembering Martin Luther King, Jr.

~Advocate Commentary~

Monday, January 16, is the birthday of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

It is a day to celebrate a simple Southern preacher’s dedication to the ideal of equal rights for all people in this country of ours.

No one fought harder, no one preserved more in the struggle to make civil rights a reality than Dr. King.

His personal commitment to nonviolence, no matter what, marked him as a true man of God and a true statesman, whose only goal was to have all of God’s children treated the same – with the same dignity and the same rights.

It’s sad to recall that back in the 50s and early 60s, much of the South in this country hadn’t accepted his call for equality. Many restaurants only served whites. There were separate restrooms in public places for blacks and whites. Many schools – some even here in the North – weren’t integrated, causing inferior educational rights for minorities.

In a nutshell, it was a sad, embarrassing period for America.

It took a man like Dr. King and his band of loyal followers – and a President like John Kennedy – to create the atmosphere for change in the country.

Unfortunately, the struggle for civil rights ended up costing Dr. King his life. He knew that a personal sacrifice was coming – we all remember his famous speech in which he said that he could see the promised land, although he felt that he might not make it there himself.

Today, civil rights are an accepted part of our lives. Our whole culture has changed for the better.

And we primarily have Dr. King to thank for that.

May he continue to rest in peach, knowing that his struggle was worth it. He is owed the gratitude of a nation that is now far better off because he once walked amongst us, awakened our social conscience and made us care for each other.
